Vic Labour
President Kurt Sharpe
Mother party New Zealand Labour Party

Vic Labour (formerly The Victoria University Labour Club) is branch of the New Zealand Labour Party. The branch is primarily made up of students from Victoria University and Massey University in Wellington, and focuses on issues relevant to young New Zealanders. Members of Vic Labour also play a large role in Young Labour, the youth wing of the party.[1]

The branch is part of the Wellington Central Labour Electorate Committee. It is a "special branch" under the Labour Party constitution which means that members may live outside the boundaries of the Wellington Central electorate and do not have to be students.



The branch was set up by Labour activists in the 1960s and helped to organise large opposition protests to the Vietnam War.

Student Politics

Members of the branch have been heavily involved in student politics at Victoria University and Massey University. Andrew Little current president of the New Zealand Labour Party was president of the Victoria University of Wellington Student's Association 1988-89.[2]
